Published By Nhi Nghe

The school year is winding down which means it’s soon to be the start of summer. Although the weather is less than perfect, people are still excited and plans are underway.

Some were just playing instruments, and no one paid attention to them. Others gathered a lot of audiences, and were applauded after each song. Their skill in music and songs were not as good as professionals, but they put a great deal of effort into attracting listeners. Some things that the artists had in common was that they were wearing interesting clothes and shoes, dyeing hair or changing their hairstyles in unusual shapes, face painting, decorating their instruments, and bringing in dancers. Some musicians would say that’s their style as same as what they do daily. Even if they make great songs, that’s nothing if there is no person to recognize them as musicians, listen to their songs.
